People who claim they can't bet at William Hill just have no imagination at all.
Zero. Either that or they have decided that leaving the house is too much of a hassle.
The same pretty much goes for Station and Caesars. Ever been to Rancho Wild Wild West
or Fiesta Henderson or El Cortez? There are just too many outlets for them to monitor.
Consolidation sucks but it also makes it nearly impossible to keep anyone specific out.
William Hill is on a whole different level. If you can't bet at William Hill you aren't trying.
Many beg out by posturing big-time and stating that they won't take their bet size.
Again - no imagination and/or lazy. The guys that complain just want to bet on the app.
I used to bet under the key limit at Stations, run to several different books to get down, and use runners to help me, but that's back when they had numbers that were a lot less market-aligned than they are today.
Now, it's just a pain in the ass with far less upside. The apps brought the numbers much closer to market.
The same goes with Will Hill. Why waste time and resources when there isn't that big of an advantage against the rest of the market?
If it were still 2012, I'd agree with you a lot more. But today, it's not worth it. It's a far bigger advantage to get access to non-US facing offshore books than to go through the bother of sneaking under the radar at Will Hill.
